I've heard of people putting toys in the crib so their kids can "play themselves to sleep." Is this okay? Shouldn't the crib be a place to sleep, and that's it? I don't have a specific bedtime for my 16 month old, I put him to bed when he's tired. Although no later than 9pm. And when he wakes up during the night, how long is too long to let him cry? I know people encourage the "cry it out" method, but how much is too much?
